Good deep ruby. Musky cassis, black cherry and spicy bitter chocolate on the nose. Concentrated and chewy but a bit youthfully reduced, with a distinctly medicinal cast to the dark fruit and menthol flavors. Showing little in the way of easy sweetness today. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and a repeating medicinal quality. More brutal today than the Howell Mountain version but with plenty of potential.

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder is another dark, powerful wine. Incense, licorice, smoke, tobacco and scorched earth flow from the glass. There is plenty of Mt. Veeder character in the wine's flavor profile and structure. Though compelling, readers need to give the 2010 time for the chewy, mouthcoating tannins to lose a bit of their edginess. The 2010 is 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030.
